Wedding Reception Review: Marcus Reid Band

Marcus Reid Band


Our apologies for the delayed thank you, but just recently got back from the honeymoon and got immediately rocked by work. So firstly, THANK YOU. You and the band absolutely crushed it. Emily and I had the best time. We have been hearing non-stop how “legit” and “epic” the band was as well as everyone agreeing with what we had told them, “that the Marcus Reid Band is the best band ever for a wedding”. Everyone loved you guys. You played so many heaters. You brought the wedding to another level and helped to make it the most special night of our lives. Please pass our thanks along to the band as well. Everyone of them was amazing and so talented. We hope you and the band had fun as well. We’re currently lobbying our parents so that we can do it all over again…not likely but it was so much fun we have to try.

A lot of our friends will be getting married and we will be sure to pass along your information…as long as they are getting married after 2018, cause we have heard you are booked absolutely solid until then ha. Naturally we will be writing a rave review on wedding wire and the like.

Best of luck going forward and hope you enjoy the move to Armonk. It’s gorgeous up there. Thank you again for everything at the wedding and leading up to it. Hopefully see you at another wedding soon.

Wedding Reception Review: Kevin Osborne

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016



Dear Kevin:

It was a true pleasure seeing you on Saturday night at our dear friend’s daughter’s wedding. I can only say this – we heard you the first time at Michael’s wedding 5 years ago maybe ? Then we heard you at his sister Heather’s wedding, then you played at Robin’s daughter Harleigh’s wedding ( Robin and I go back 40 years) and then I made sure that Nancy hired you for her son Eric’s Bar Mitzvah. Get the picture ?

When Judy called me with a wedding date, I insisted she book you before she had THE SPACE – I said “Judy – do not even listen to another band: Kevin is your man” and Judy went ahead and booked you. Judy is thanking me over and over again and so did Nancy and Mark after Eric’s Bar Mitzvah.

In all my party going years filled with wonderful events, I have never heard a band better than yours. YOU make the party, period. End of story. The food, flowers, room- it all matters but…. Everyone cares most about having a wonderful fun time dancing and you make it all happen. You have presence, style, polish and an understanding of the rhythm of a party and crowd that no other band leader has. Your voice is the best and you always put together a great group.My husband and I went on our usual jog on Sunday after getting home at 2 am and our legs felt like we had run a marathon the day before. I can go on and on but you get the point.
My husband Paul and I are determined to come up with an event in the future (we don’t have children) so we can hire you. We will – it’s only a matter of time. 70th birthday, retirement ? , anniversary whatever ! We love to entertain and what better way than to share your marvelous talent with all of our friends. You ARE the best.

Happy New Year and warmest regards,

Dear Colleen,

We wanted to write a quick note to thank you (x1000000) for recommending Dane’s band and for giving us such a great deal. They were OUTSTANDING! I cannot gush enough. I had the most perfect time at the wedding and it was the much fun night of my life, which I attribute largely to the amazing music and incredible energy of the band. We definitely have a good group of party people as our friends and I think everyone brought it to an entirely new level at the wedding thanks to Dane and the band.

We will be recommending Dane to any and all engaged couples we come across in the future. Please let us know if you ever need anyone to sing their praises – we would be happy to do so.

Thank you again so much for all of your help,

Daisy and Joe
